Paines Plough and Curve Theatre present COME TO WHERE I’M FROM: LEICESTER

Saturday 4 April 2020 at 7.00pm 

Since 2010 more than 160 playwrights from across the UK have written plays about the places that shaped them. Together these plays make up a theatrical tapestry of the nation – a playwrights’ guide to Great Britain. Hosted by Paines Plough Joint Artistic Director Charlotte Bennett, this Saturday night Naomi Obeng will be performing a piece that she has written about the place that she calls home.

All previous plays are available to listen to on Paines Plough’s free COME TO WHERE I’M FROM app.

 


Slung Low present YOU CAN BET! 

Sunday 5 April 2020 at 7.00pm 

An evening of digital daring, team work and ingenuity YOU CAN BET is a game show for all to play. Hosted by Slung Low live from The Holbeck. Teams guess if a randomly selected audience champion will complete each round of mental agility, physical stuntery and down right daftness.

 


NSDF Open Mic 

Tuesday 7 April 2020 at 7.00pm 

Join us for a night of celebrating new talent from where you are. We’re excited to bring you NSDF’s classic Open Mic Night – Virtual Edition. Whether you’re showing off an existing skill or performing for the very first time, grab that microphone (a hairbrush will do) and let’s go live together.

If you’re a keen musician, an emerging poet or if you want to show us something completely different then get in touch, we can’t wait to showcase you.

To sign up or if you have any questions, then please email Management Team Member Saxon at [email protected] by 12pm Tuesday 7th April.
